Within a class of 300-plus students, many leaders emerge. When those leaders’ spheres of influence extend from academics to community service to campus organizations, people take notice. Two such campus leaders are recognized each spring as the Altrusa Outstanding Senior Woman and as the Outstanding Senior Man.
Kimberly Cook and Daryl McKee received those awards in 2012, their co-curricular involvement spanning from Service Station board and Alpha Phi Omega national service fraternity to lacrosse and Austin College Dance Team. They were involved in religious life groups, Greek organizations, and academic and cultural organizations.
Kim completed majors in biology and history and begins study next spring at University of Texas School of Public Health. Daryl, who completed a major in biochemistry and a minor in mathematics, is enrolled in a one-year master’s degree program in medical sciences at University of North Texas Health Science Center. Both plan to attend medical school.
A past president of Zeta Chi Beta fraternity, Daryl also was selected as Outstanding Greek Man. Laylee Ghafar ’13, a member of Alpha Delta Chi sorority and Greek Council, was selected as the 2012 Outstanding Greek Woman.
